Did you know that Woodbridge is the oldest township in New Jersey? It was settled in 1664 and was given a charter by King Charles of England in 1669. This lovely little town was named in honor of Reverend John Woodbridge of Newbury, Massachusetts.
Besides Woodbridge’s rich history, it’s also an excellent community for several other reasons. Woodbridge was rated on the “Top 50 Safest Cities in Raise a Child in America” by SafeWise in 2019. In addition to being a safe community, there are several woodsy parks, perfect for hiking and bike-riding, as well as updated playgrounds for all age groups.

The Woodbridge school district ranks high in the state and is among the best for young athletes and academics alike. Woodbridge teachers are known for their dedication and excellence, and students throughout the district have been acknowledged for their stellar performance and achievements.
Woodbridge is also known for its incredible shopping centers.
